A total of 30 Corona USA made Stratocasters were donated by Fender and then presented by HeartStrings to various celebrities to paint and return. The custom 1-of-1 Fender Stratocasters, all hand painted by the celebrities were then auctioned at the Hollywood and Beverly Hills Hard Rock Cafe's to benefit HeartStrings; where many sold for over 10k !
The tremolo cover attached to the back of the guitar commemorates the event and this as a 1/1 guitar. Ms Belafonte signed the front portion with the date 2000.

This is a great sounding and playing professional grade instrument, and also very collectible "Art" with huge investment potential !
